Kilgraston is a world class boarding and day school, offering education for children aged five to eighteen. We have an enviable record of academic achievement at the highest levels. Our fundamental believe is that each child must feel valued, respected and emotionally secure.
We pride ourselves on knowing the pupil; here you are more than just a name, here you are part of a family.
Strong individual academic achievement is at the heart of Kilgraston but our education goes beyond the classroom. We offer our pupils an extensive extra-curricular programme. We pride ourselves on our pastoral care, having dedicated and talented staff who know pupils as individuals.
Rolling hills, unspoilt open moor, and all just 45 minutes from Edinburgh, Kilgraston is proud to offer children a stunning and safe Scottish countryside campus in which to learn and grow. Situated in 54 acres of the best Scottish parkland, we follow the Scottish Examination system of National Fives, Highers and Advanced Highers.
Our Junior School offers education for boys and girls from five to twelve. Our Senior School and Sixth Form is girls only. Our leavers go on to study at some of the best universities in the world with 25% of our leavers in 2023 receiving unconditional offers for St Andrews University, then the top UK university according to the Sunday Times/ the Times Good University Guide.
We offer first-class facilities including our very own, on-site equestrian centre – the only school in Scotland. We have a stunning 25 metre indoor swimming pool, a full-sized hockey pitch, eight tennis courts, a gym and a rock-climbing wall.
The Kilgraston staff work hard to ensure that each pupil matures intellectually and personal through all their years at Kilgraston. The distinctive Kilgraston experience is designed to develop young people who have a thirst for life-long, independent learning and a vital commitment to making a real difference to the world around them.
